Having full root-level access means that you can access and update every file on a selected server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.
